Abstract

The stagnation of grain output per head in the 1990s in China raises questions about grain sector performance. This paper discusses the scope for further reforms to contribute to output growth. Opportunities for further reform in both input and output markets are identified. The potential contribution of research and development is also noted. The discussion is presented in the context of the forces for structural change in the economy associated with its rapid growth and industrialisation
